No matter whether they are job shop operators, high-volume manufacturers, or innovative “tinkerers” making up prototypes, they achieve the highest of performance in working sheet metal, day in and day out. It is especially for these masters in sheet metal processing that TRUMPF has developed a new online magazine. On the site at www.mastersofsheetmetal.com TRUMPF shows what motivates them, how they work, and what makes them successful. Visitors to this site will learn, for example, about the strategy used by the Fabrinox job shop in South Africa to maintain its reputation as an absolutely dependable partner delivering top-quality sheet metal parts. They can also read about brothers Gilles and Pascal Martinez. Starting out in a simple shed in the Provence region in southern France, in fewer than ten years they grew their company to become a modern industrial enterprise occupying 2,200 square meters of floor space.
In addition to stories about the masters of sheet metal, the site includes many helpful hints and information on TRUMPF technologies, on the applications that use them, and on recent product innovations – all centered on the subject of sheet metal. The web site augments the TRUMPF Express customer magazine, founded in 1983 and appearing three times a year.
